How do you find a pediatrician?
LeeAnn is having her first baby and she hasn't chosen a pediatrian yet. Does she need to?
I'm due November 7th and just had my 28 week check up with my doc at OHSU this morning. On top of taking the icky Glucose test, and questioning my overall well being, she asked if I've looked into any pediatricians yet. No I have not. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield and being my little man will be born there at OHSU, I've just been assuming I'd pick one up there at Doernbechers - but I'd love to hear of other BC/BS pediatricians. We live in the SW (near Multnomah Village) and like the location of OHSU, but are there others out there I should consider that are also close in proximity? Also, is it customary to 'interview' the pediatrician before birth? What do I ask? What am I looking for? What's typically accomplished in an 'interview/meet-n-greet' with a new pediatrician?
